Joomla! 1.5.17 Released

Joomla 1.5.15 Released

 

The Joomla Project announces the immediate availability of Joomla 1.5.17 [Wojmamni ama woobusani]. This is a priority release to correct two issues in version 1.5.16. Although there are no security issues fixed in this release, we consider it a security release because a security-related bug has been fixed and because many sites may be upgraded directly from 1.5.15 to 1.5.17.

The Development Working Group's goal is to continue to provide regular, frequent updates to the Joomla community.
